Officially, this is the first entry in the East Side Kids franchise. Made in 1940, this Monogram programmer doesn't yet have the familiar chemistry of Leo Gorcey, Huntz Hall, Bobby Jordan and Sammy Morrison, but it's an interesting and fun entry.

An episode of "I Remember Mama" called "Madame Zodiac". Picture quality is awful, perhaps even horrific. Actual show is great, perhaps even wonderful. With some original commercials. Episode aired during 1950. A 50s-era show set in the 1910s, uploaded in the 2010s....think about that. May give you the sudden urge to drink coffee.

Episode "Queen of the Bee" of the popular early television series "Mama". Dagmar wants to win the spelling bee contest, while her father places a bet. It is almost interesting that we are in the 2010s, with this 1950s TV show, set in the 1910s! Complete with original commercials and note about summer schedule break.

An episode of "Your Hit Parade" from the 24th December 1955. This NBC series presented the cast performing covers of pop chart hits. This episode has excellent production values and one of the worst commercials of all time. Also one of the few episodes of this series with an actual guest star. Main Singers are Dorothy Collins, Snooky Lanson, Russell Arms, and Gisele MacKenzie.

The concept was good but the casting was not. All were sent home except Mr. Ed who remained in his strall. The casting of the "voice: of Mr. Ed was "Rocky Lane, a 1940's singing cwboy from Republic studios who took up residence at the creator's home on the sofa". said Alan Young in an interview. He didn't get credit for the voice because at first he didn't want to be associated with a talking horse but when the show caught on, he wanted credit but was denied it. The producer of...
